We’ll hysterically tell you of historical fact

‘Bout a century that started when our people fought back

Men and women together claimed a Republic for all,

Well, one with women at home and the men in the Dáil.


Oh, the Church and the State got in bed together

To make sure that the men had the finest of weather

Single women, too, were granted a ‘supportive’ decree

To ensure they got married and baby makes three.


Yes, each decade demanded support for the nation

With guaranteed commitment to holy procreation

And as families got bigger, they’d no choice but to flee

Missing ‘Gay Byrne’ and ‘Bosco’ and ‘The Rose of Tralee’.


So with music and drama and fashion galore,

SAOL’s C.E. fashionistas will take to the floor.

And they’ll show you that even though women are still oppressed,

Like their foremothers before them, they fight it well dressed.
